UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Location/Date:Bottle split with Ben on November 11, 2012.
Appearance: Pours copper haze.
Aroma: Light grapefruit.
Taste:Medium light bitterness, grapefruit.
Summary: Solid spa with a decent amount if bitterness.
Had this on draft. This one wasn’t as good as the Citra anti-venom, but not bad. Golden hazy pour with nose of peppery spice, pale malt, and the green bullet flavor primarily as you drink it. obguthr (6295) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Slightly juicy aroma, clementines. Clear amber, medium head. Grass flavor, grain. Sessionable, balanced, a great everyday pale ale. Drake (13637) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bomber from State Line. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tropical hops, mangos, herbal notes almost to the point of being salty. The taste is hoppy... herbal, citrus, lemongrass. Medium bodied. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2012
This poured a medium orange color with a white head. Aroma was citrusy and soap hops, some light malt. Flavor was nicely balanced, fairly bitter and dcent hop flavor but nothing amazing. would drink again.

Pours a clear golden amber with soapy khaki head. Nose is ’green’, butter (but not like typical diacetyl), and lightly hoppy. Pleasant, and does not knock you over with an abundance of hops in the aroma. Flavor is green and like a pine cone. A little floral. Lingering bitter woody finish, like licking a stick. Pretty tasty. sloth (2895) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Medium sized off white head with good retention and lacing. Copper hued ale with a light haze. Nose is tame, lightly malty and hoppy. Body is medium with a coating mouthfeel and not the good kind, a bit chewy. Sorta pastey, not real enjoyable. Lightly sweet caramel malt flavors with an earthy hop note. Lil muddled and musty.

Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/11/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly citrusy, some orange/tropical fruit, and some floral notes
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a bubbly beige head
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, not as fruity as the nose, with a hoppy bitterness on the finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth feel to it, an average carbonation, and a dry finish
I think the nose of this one performs better in the bottle one draft, but otherwise, I think the draft score was just about right.
Location: Draft at Arundal Mills Brewpub, 5/28/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly light, with a little orange, some earth, and malt
Appearance: It pours a clear orange, with a lasting beige head, and heavy lace
Flavor: This one tastes malty mostly, with a light citrus fruit presence, it is not too sweet or bitter
Palate: This one has a light-medium body, it is a touch watery, and fairly smooth/creamy on the mouth
Overall, I found this to be bit dull, but still a decent pale ale. Not too hop forward, and with only a decent flavor profile, but it is quite smooth and creamy with a good look as well.
Bomber via sloth, thanks for the throw in. Pours brownish amber hue capped by a small of white head that reduces to a light cap. Lacing rings the glass nicely. Nose has a nice mellow citrus tone. Taste starts slightly sweet with malt, caramel, and faint toast. Citrus hop on the finish. Bitterness is well placed and enjoyable. Medium bodied. lamas (1636) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2012
22 oz. bottle. A clear reddish amber pour with a thick antique white head. The moderately floral aroma is dominated by oranges, grapefruits, pineapples, and mangoes along with a big biscuity caramel maltiness that keeps things from being too one-sided. Goes down thin to medium-bodied. A tad watery. A much maltier taste than expected from the aroma. Lots of caramel and a bit of a biscuity quality upfront flavor-wise. A good deal of drying citrus fruits and rinds at the end. Finishes crisp and just slightly bitter. Nothing too special here.
